Baylor Baseball Inks Eight to 2021 Signing Class

November 11, 2020

WACO, Texas – Baylor baseball inked eight players to the 2021 signing class on Wednesday, adding to an already deep roster that had its 2020 season shortened back in March.
The Bears added seven players from high school and one from junior college, all of which reside in Texas. The group is a mix of right-handed pitchers, one catcher, three infielders and several two-way players.

"We are really excited about this group of eight. Coach Mike Taylor and Coach Jon Strauss once again did an outstanding job with this class,” head coach Steve Rodriguez said. "We have a great mix of guys that are all from the state of Texas and I’m excited for them to officially join the Baylor Family. These guys wanted to come to Baylor to both grow as young men and baseball players and I’m eager to watch their growth when they arrive on campus next year.”
